MOSTARDA DI CREMONA

MOSTARDA DI CREMONA

So I’ve been on a Jane Gardam binge lately, reading everything of hers I can get my hands on.  Her writing is addictive, her stories filled with all-too-human characters and happy small surprises. (Start with Old Filth; and no, it’s not what you think.) In The Hot Sweets of Cremona she introduces us to Mostarda di Cremona, “bright […]

HOME MADE KIMCHI

HOME MADE KIMCHI

No doubt about it, kimchi is an acquired taste. But once familiarized with its fiery, tangy crunch, it’s addictive. Thanks to the rise of Korean-American chefs like Roy Choi and David Chang kimchi has found felicitous mash-ups with other cuisines, notably Mexican. I particularly like a big blob of cool kimchi on top of pasta […]

CORN CHUTNEY AND TWO NEAT GADGETS: HOT JAR MITT AND CORN CUTTER

EXTRA LARGE SUMMER FRUIT TART HACK

EXTRA LARGE SUMMER FRUIT TART HACK

Working off the same base recipe posted earlier, this XL version used tonka beans to infuse the crust with a smooth spicy taste and heady vanilla aroma. Not to worry, cinnamon still works fine. Nectarines and apricots were the fruit de jour; they’re great for this tart because they don’t need to be peeled. The […]

MARCELLA HAZAN STYLE TOMATO SAUCE CANNING RECIPE - FRESHTECH HACK

MARCELLA HAZAN STYLE TOMATO SAUCE CANNING RECIPE – FRESHTECH HACK

Marcella Hazan’s celebrated tomato sauce is pretty simple – the original recipe calls only for tomatoes, onion, butter and salt. And it makes about two cups of sauce, a nice amount for one pound of pasta. But Marcella’s recipe is not home-canning friendly.  Her simmered-then-discarded onion is fine, the big chunk of butter is not. […]
